Week 9: at New York Giants

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andrew Luck is on an amazing tear through the NFL, with five games of 370 yards or more passing so far this season (including last week's 26/45 for 400 yards, with three TDs and two interceptions thrown at Pittsburgh) and seven-out-of-eight games with in excess of 300 yards passing. T.Y. Hilton is the sixth-ranked wide receiver in the land at the half-way point, with 53/866/2 receiving; Dwayne Allen is eighth among fantasy tight ends with 22/326/6; and Ahmad Bradshaw is fifth among fantasy running backs in the PPR paradigm with 76/371/2 rushing and 31/264/6 receiving. That's a studly collection of Colts, friends. The Giants' pass D is ranked 25th in the NFL averaging 262.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores offset by 11 interceptions generated to date (second-most in the NFL). However, Luck has thrown 22 pass TDs vs. nine interceptions this year - he's not especially prone to turnovers. The Giants have 13 sacks this season (21st in the NFL). Tony Romo hit this group for 17/23 yielding 267 net yards, three TDs and one interception (two sacks for -12 yards) two weeks ago; Nick Foles threw 21/34 for 245 yards, two TDs and two interceptions, with one sack taken for -3 yards back in Week 6. This is a great matchup for Luck and company on Monday Night Football during Week 9.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs HOU (4 / 2 / 11 / 1 rec)

Like Dwayne Allen, Fleener's numbers will be touchdown dependent, but at an even more extreme rate. Fleener is, at best, the fourth or fifth option in the passing game, and has seen just eight targets over the last three weeks. Fortunately, two of those have been touchdowns, as the Colts utilize their tight ends very well in the red zone. Fleener's touchdown on Thursday was a fantastic pre-snap read by Luck, and Fleener got an easy score over the middle.

2014 Week 7 vs CIN (5 / 4 / 64 / 0 rec)

In what was Fleener's most impressive game this year, the third-year tight end was reliable as an underneath option and made a fantastic, twisting grab for 26 yards in the third quarter. He didn't get a touchdown, but in the Colts' loaded offense, 64 yards is about as good as it's going to get for Fleener without getting a touchdown.

2014 Week 8 vs PIT (4 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Despite being targeted four times, Fleener was able to haul in just one catch for four yards, and his impact on the game was minimal. With the large deficit for most of the game, the Colts spread the field more often. With Fleener never developing into the deep threat that he was envisioned to be, Luck didn't look his way often on Sunday.
